11.2oz : tulip

Dark red-mahogany with a very thick, billowy foamy light tan head.

Dark fruit, light boozy notes, faint spice.

The taste follows the nose, with complex dark fruit notes blended with some sweet malts, spice from the yeast and faint boozy warmth.

Medium body, with foamy, fizzy carbonation.

A very well done BSDA. Complex flavor profiles, and while the alcohol is noticeable, it really serves to compliment the flavors, rather than distract from them.

Deep copper and clear with a huge beige head. Very inviting. Aroma is spicy with hints of brown sugar. Rich, malty and slightly sweet. Good depth of flavor. The alcohol isn't hot but it is there. The mouthfeel is thick and creamy. This is a rich tasty beer best enjoyed slowly.
